weapons ban, said a new one can't pass congress. west virginia democratic senator joe manchin, after newtown, questioned the right to own assault weapons. now manchin says he's disappointed that the president did not recommend the creation of the national commission on mass violence. the president of the nra wants the focus on the shooters. >> we need to find ways to get at the root causes of this kind of violence and keep firearms with ten-round magazines, 20-round magazines, whatever, out of the hands of the kinds of people who involve themselves in this kind of activity. and they are invariably severely mentally ill. >> reporter: but the nra is resisting universal background checks. >> if you can get a record of who owns fire arms, the government could force them to sell guns back to the government. that's basically confiscation. >> reporter: a more emotional debate, but not more agreement, at least not yet, despite the massacre at the school. and america remains divided. today's nbc news/"wall street journal" poll finds that the nra has not lost support. since newfound 41% approv
continued with the vice president and joe manchin, the plan on the right, they are accompanying senator mark kirk, a year after he suffered a stroke that paralyzed him after arduous -- i hope i said mark kirk -- after a year of arduous rehabilitation, senator kirk is returning to work and has decided he wants to climb those stairs himself. he had to re-learn to walk, and he said his ultimate inspiration was this climb. obviously a lot of photo ops along the way. so many of the staffers and others senators have shown their support, as he makes this very dramatic assent on his first day back to work. obviously there as well to see some of the swearing in of his new senators, the colleagues who will join him for the chambers. this is a great moment, a nice moment of bipartisanship. great to see the vip alongside him. congratulations to mark kirk. there he goes. >>> lest you think that this is something he didn't think he could handle. he can handle it. these are 45 steps at the state capitol, but he already had some trial runs elsewhere. he climbed 37 floors, the staircases in the chicago willi
new york times" today, democrat joe manchin of west virginia has faced doubts within his constituency who feel the second amendment is in jeopardy. "the times" describes the senator's attempts to reassure his constituents about the political climate in washington. he said i see no movement, no talk, no bills, no nothing. they remained skeptical. we give up our rights one piece at a time. a banker named charlie houck. he actually had a meeting and said how many of you are concerned you're going to lose your second amendment rights? all the hands went up. that shows how difficult it's going to be, even at this table, it seems to clear what needs to be done. that's not the way everybody feels. >> i'm disappointed mr. scarborough is not at this table because we had a heated one-on-one about first and second amendment about video games, comparing it to slippery slope on the second amendment. i've done a lot of research since then. i want to go back at him on that. this is a black-and-white issue again. to draw the line and say that in some way, shape or form we are going back to the founde

territory if they can thread the needle for people like joe manchin. >> the numbers are overwhelming. you have joe manchin who's now coming together, has a bipartisan bill out we'll be talking about. he's together with senator kirk out of illinois, a republican, talking about universal background checks. again, this is something that stands anywhere from 85% to 92% approval rating. the nra is still against it. we'll see if any republicans are still against it, too. steve, i'm going to -- since mika's not here -- >> oh, god. >> my breakfast has just arrived. and i'm going to prepare, and i'm going to make it even harder for a woman to carry me from combat. and we'll be right back. when we come back, we're going to be talking to mary matalin. i'm very excited about that. she likes munchkins as well.

that they face on that front given the fact that joe manchin and others is an "a" rated by the nra, democrat from west virginia. couple weeks ago immediately after newtown, he was quite open. he said everything should be on the table and in some of the things that we've heard him say over the last 24 to 48 hours where he said the idea of an assault weapons ban alone is just not going to stand. it needs to be something comprehensive. appears clear that there is a lot of challenge to that ban being reinstated in congress. >> peter, we're going the ask you to stand by. i'm going to go to the reverend al sharpton, el shultz here in studio with me. gentlemen, i want to show everybody the front page of politico, double trouble, house gop eyes default, and shutdown. ed, as we just heard peter talking about there, the language being used by republicans in washington, d.c. right now. it will be interesting to hear how the president comes out. is this his first volley at getting to sell this to the american people? >> well, i think it's important that the president come out and set the tone of what the par
and try to pressure, say, more moderate democrats like joe manchin in west virginia on issues like gun control that could back fire in a red state like west virginia where he is from. there is a fine balance here, bill. >> that will be interesting to watch. back to monday though. will he get into specifics about, say, immigration or even guns, ed? >> no. aids say that he wants to make this a big picture speech. and sort of it's going to be a bicend to the state of the union address that's coming next month. just as he did last year, he will lay out a lot of policy prescriptions. that's where we think he will fill in a lot of details. we heard certainly a lot of details on what he wants for guns, for example. he will have to talk a lot more in the state of the union about deficit control. we have this new fox poll out tonight to. people are upset about fiscal cliff deal. when asked if their paycheck is smaller this year because of more taxfuls being taken out 60% say yes 25% say no. he is going to have to talk about more deficit reduction. they will do a will little partying this weeken
in the senate to that idea. joe manchin says he might be working with nra and mark kirk from indiana. do you think that's an area red state democrats in the senate actual consensus for that policy outcome? >> if they support background checks for gun control and the her its of the policy, electoral politics should have nothing to do with their decision. you know, 90% of voters and nra owners and maybe 85% of members support background checks for gun control. i'm sorry, for gun owners. so yeah. go ahead and do it if you support it. >> amen. the only nate that counts, thank you very much. >> oh! >>> up next, republicans pushing a rule change to the electoral college that professor kornacki says in place in 2012 could have us with president romney right now. scary! >>> and we have a theme with the music today. tell us what you think it is. it's friday, january 25th. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this... [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hand
, it will be a difficult climb. i think it is interesting and surprising that joe manchin is in this fight, at least in terms of the background checks and i think we have seen this energy now on the gun control side that we haven't seen. >> 92% of all americans in favor of a universal background check. nra households, 85%, chris. we have said that number many times. but going back to this group of senators who are working on this deal reportedly, tom coburn, mark kirk, we know his ties to illinois and the chicago area, of course. and chuck schumer and we have seen legislation in new york, even i just saw a report that governor cuomo approval rating took a dip as a result of some people believing he went too far with new legislation in the state but when you look at this group, these four men here, are they the best faces to at least get something moving coming to background checks? set aside legislation on assault weapons. but just on background checks and widely supported. >> i mean, i think it's a good diverse mix in terms of if you will, centrist conservative democrats, moderate democrats. you ha
conservative areas like joe manchin. >> let's pose that question to you, bill, you want to ask her again? >> hey there, congresswoman, it's bill burton. i was asking do you think there's any hope for republicans who you can work with in the house in order to get anything done? what do you think there are republicans, what do you think that any republicans might support at all? >> i actually do think, because of the new super pack that gabby giffords and her husband and of course they are gun owners, they've been nra members, we have a new political reality out there, and i think that there is a mobilization of americans like we've never seen before and that's going to include the sportsman and it's going to include the gun owners that are saying we can do better to protect our communities and to protect the second amendment. so i think politically, we're going to see some of those members and areas that have been with the nra saying, taking another look and saying, am i going to be hearing from people in my community, from my voters that are saying, no, we have to make some sensible chan
, if the president wanted to get any, any modification to the nation's weapons laws, he had a moment. joe manchin, the senator from west virginia and bob casey, senator from pennsylvania, pro-gun democrats said let's talk about this, let's have a discussion. if barack obama wanted to have a change, it wouldn't have been probably a sweeping large change, but could have had something, that might have dealt with mental health issues, might have been gun show loophole. it might have had something to do with the size of magazines available for weapons, but he had a moment he could have turned to those guys and said work up legislation, i'll get behind it and help you sell. instead what the president said was, we're going to go big, go for a big comprehensive solution and what that did was send the message to pro-gun democrats and to all of the republican party, the president means to crack down on guns and he's going to use this as an opportunity to do it and it basically froze the conversation. >> megyn: and it also led to a huge spike in gun sales at various places, you know, across the united state
, like joe manchin, the senator from west virginia, and other progun lawmakers who came out and said that they might be in favor of some sort of legislation early on. and then we didn't hear from some of them throughout this time. where they stand now, and how senator reid, the senate majority leader stands going forward. jon: that is going to be -- well the devil is in the details as always. bret baier the anchor of special report. i know you'll be on with a great program tonight on all of this. thank you. jenna: a critical deadline is approaching fast, the national credit card about to reach its limit and now democrats apparently want to get rid of that limit all together. the latest on this debate from capitol hill coming up. also, the world's newest luxury jet grounded now by japan. the latest problems with the dreamliner, next. if there was a pill to help protect your eye health as you age... would you take it? well, there is.

, and are nra members focusing on that there needs to be changes, including senator mark warner and joe manchin. so i think the focus needs to be on what are republicans willing to do. the white house is not going to go way left on this. they know that there needs to be some middle ground consensus. and i think that what is going to push that mid ground c-- mid grou le ground consensus is the american people. i think this happened after the 20 people were massacred in newtown. >> i think a lot of people are saying the same thing. on a different topic, i want your impressions on the president's new cabinet nominees coming out. amy, i'll go to you first. your overall opinion and highlights? >> my overall impression is that the president, he is stacking up a railroad car full of very highly controversial nominees. we have jack lew for u.s. treasury who we already have -- we see very stiff opposition to. and the president surely knew that going in. there have been reports that mr. lew was quite controversial when it came to the debt ceiling negotiation, that the other side did not find him to be so
rounds or more plus universal background checks. senator joe manchin a lifelong member of the nra is open to such a plan and would like to see more. >> i would like to hear from them why you need a larger magazine. you can't push the nra and law-abiding gun owners, you have have them at the table. what are their preference protecting that. >> reporter: nra has made it clear it is not in favor of any ban on assault weapons. so the up tense battle on both sides will likely continue, martha. martha: what are we seeing from the nra as what they think will happen on the president's plan to curb gun violence? what are they proposing? what would they give? >> reporter: good question. the nra believes the president will not have enough support in congress to support any type of ban on assault weapons or even high-capacity magazines for that matter. the nra, martha, believes the root of the problem is mental illness. therefore it is pushing for a measure to keep guns out of the hands of those who have been adjudicated as people with mental illness problems. >> i think it is a false security to thi
